How Singapore built a global financial centre: an SG50 interactive timeline

50 years of finance!

If you’re working in Singapore today you’re no doubt already aware of why the city state can be great place to work in finance: it has a stable economy, a strong regulatory framework and an established global foothold in sectors ranging from foreign exchange to wealth management.

But as Singapore celebrates its 50th birthday this year, it’s worth remembering how it managed to grow from a banking backwater in 1965 to the world’s fourth largest financial centre today.

We’ve created the interactive timeline below to showcase some of the key strides that Singapore’s finance sector has taken over the past 50 years – events that have led to almost 200,000 finance professionals now calling Singapore home.
